of transition for american foreign policy as senator john kerry faces a high-stakes job interview to be the secretary of state. kerry's confirmation hearings were rather cordial hosted by the foreign relations committee which he's led for the past four years. but it was an unexpected moment when the hearings were interrupted by a protester that offered perhaps the most telling revelation about the man and the moment. >> i'm tired of my friends dying. i don't know if they're going to be alive the next day. >> when i first came to washington and testified, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about. people measure what we do. >> kerry's confirmation hearing today comes a day after secretary hillary clinton stood her ground offering a robust defense of her handling of those attacks in benghazi that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. at wednesday's long-awaited hearings on benghazi, clinton took responsibility for security lapses but that obviously was not go
think the interesting thing will be to see whether senator kerry, when he goes to testify tomorrow in his confirmation hearing, whether or not he comes to it with more of a sort of big picture strategy of what he would do within the region. now, it's possible that one reason the secretary didn't have that, is, of course, she's been out sick for a good number of weeks and they have been cons e consumed by the individual incident in benghazi. >> of course, the overriding question that the republican critics have been focusing on is susan rice, the talking points, this is another one of the exchanges with senator johnson and hillary clinton. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately there was no protest? that was a piece of information that koufcould have been easily easily obtained within hours, if not days. >> senator, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on -- number one. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> no, it's the f
, because the chairman of this committee is john kerry, the expected successor to hillary clinton. i'm told, do not expect to see kerry even in the room today. he is recusing himself, so today's committee will be chaired by the next most senior democrat, and that is bob me n menendez of new jersey. barbara boxer also has seniority in this committee, but she is the chair of another committee, so the way the rules will work, it will be bob menendez of new jersey who will be chairing this. interesting to watch, a couple of the senators who might be in a 2016 frame of mind, marco rubio, rand paul, perhaps, they also did not serve with hillary clinton as a senator. so the tone might be different there. there's a lot of respect on both sides of the aisle from those senators who did know her personally, while she was a member of the u.s. senate. chris? >> well, you've set it up pretty well there, it seems, because you've got a very formidable political presence there. hillary clinton, we just looked at the new numbers on her, she's three to one popular. do you think that will make the republican
: clinton returns for one last time tomorrow to introduce john kerry at his confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state. a much happier occasion. today was so ferocious at times that one republican senator on the committee later accused clinton of faking her emotion. a sign that her critics may try to make benghazi an issue if clinton does decide to run for president, brian. >> what a day it was on capitol hill. andrea mitchell starting us off from washington. andrea, thanks. >>> all of this brings us to our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, in the studio. at one point the secretary just kind of waved her hand today to indicate the whole region of the middle east as something we should have our eyes on. as you know, all too well, it's a tinder box. what do you have your eyes on right now? >> in regards to this testimony, i think she was highlighting the problems in north africa. and it really goes down to weapons. when gadhafi was falling, i was there at the time, i had never seen so many weapons in my entire life. and they were just being taken from depots,
. i understand we'll welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to introduce senator kerry to the committee. we'll look forward to welcoming you there as well. i think that there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is that changes in the department have clear lines of authority. and responsibility for security matters instead of silos and looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that's underway. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work. and that has
kerry, deval patrick, scott brown, and mitt romney. after the break we're going to add a new and interesting name to the list. that's next. stay with us. ♪ ♪ >> jennifer: you're back inside "the war room." we have been talk about hillary clinton testimony. but it's not the first time she has been in that position. in 1993 she addressed congress with her plans to overhaul health care and that didn't go so well, and it would be another 16 years before any major health care reform. but as we well know that was not the end of hillary clinton. our next guest also knows what it is like to face off against republicans opposed to reforming health care, and to live and fight again. the gop blocked dr. donald berwick appointment. he has got some good revenge though, because he is now considering a run for the massachusetts state house as governor. so while republicans may have knocked him down, they sure did not knock him out, and coming to us tonight from newton massachusetts, is dr. donald berwick. >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. as with hillary
hillary clinton willot light. be back on capitol hill to introduce john kerry as the next secretary of state designate. today the last long look we will have of hillary clip for ton for at least the time being. >>> there may be a connection between benghazi and the algerian attack last week. some of the attackers in algeria were part of the consultate attack. one of the militants made that claim under interrogation. if confirmed it would reenforce concerns held by many regarding regional cooperation between extremists i.e. they are working together at times. ambassador chris stevens of piedmont was killed in the attack along with three other americans. today stevens stepfather said that secretary clinton reached out to his family about the deadly september raid and has written them several times to express her regrets but the family is not discussing whether security was adequate leading up to the assault. >>> let's move on to apple where the polish may have finally worn off tonight. the company today turned in an earnings report that for the first time in years did not show a doubl
by john kerry. of course he has been nominated to replace secretary clinton. senator bob menendez, senator from knew jersey -- new jersey will wield the gavel have. bill. bill: it is fascinating to see how all of the events of the news ties into not just benghazi but what is happening all over the northern part of africa. what is she expected to say about the war on terror and the pursuit of al qaeda? >> reporter: bill, we expect she will talk about essentially all of the attacks that have been on these diplomatic facilities dating back to the 1970s or 1980s even. essentially how it has been a problem spot for both republican and democratic administrations. she is also expected to take responsibility for what happened in benghazi. here's a sample what her, let's go back to the hearing, bill. bill: mike, thank you. this is senator bob menendez out of new jersey, who is beginning his statement and we would anticipate hillary clinton to follow him. let's listen. >> officially seating members. i want to ask unanimous consent of returning members to allow our prospective members to participate
something yesterday on capitol hill. today hillary clinton will introduce john kerry at his confirmation hearing to replace her as secretary of state. the session is expected to take on a much different tone than the tough questioning she faced yesterday about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. take a look at what happened. >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> number two -- well, no, it's the fact. we have no doubt they were terrorists, militants, they attacked us, they killed our people. but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing -- >> no, no, no. >> -- is still -- >> again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that, and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact. and the american people could have known that within day, and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest, or was
senator kerry to the committee. we look forward to talking to you then as well. i think there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel and we are moving in that direct. the other thing is that the government has clear lines of authorities and responsibility for security matters instead of silos looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that that is under way. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire military force. it seems to me we can protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines and i am concerned when the a.r.b. says that the state department has been engaged for years and a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work and that has conditioned the thinking of some in the state department that it is imperative for the state department to b
of thoughts about what more we can and should do given this new reality we face. >> thank you. senator kerry >> thank you. -- senator. >> thank you. you have always spoken out forcefully where required. this is maybe the last time you come before us as secretary. i want to thank you for your advocacy on behalf of women around the globe. you will be sorely missed. i hope not for too long. as you have said, you were heartbroken by those losses in benghazi. we saw your face many times today, as well. you were heartbroken personally and professionally. rather than 0.2 others for their deficiencies, you stepped up and convened an accountability to review board to look into this in detail. you asked them to tell it the way they saw it. i want to give you my take on that. i want to go to something the senator said which i agree with. the first report we got from the intelligence community a week or so after was very confusing. it was not helpful to us. all of us felt that way. i want to speak for my self. the difference between that meeting and the meeting we had with those cochairs could not have
praised. while senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you said in your opening statement, you're determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure and in my view because of your leadership, they are. today we continue the consideration of the advisory review board which found that security was quote grossly inadequate to deal with the attack on benghazi. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable. i'm pleased that the state department has gun to promptly implement the board's recommendations thanks to your leadership. i know you agree the massive security failures such as those witnessed in benghazi that cost the lives of four brave americans, simply cannot happen again. i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect diplomats and other americans who put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the africa subcommittee, i'm pleased you have drawn for the committee in y
'll be able to welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to be part of introducing senator kerry to the committee. so we look forward to welcome you t well. i think there are several takeways here that are incredibly important. one is, is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is the changes in the department have clear lines of authority and responsibility for security matters. instead of silos, looking more at a horizontal nature. i understand that is underway. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry ou
, speaks out for the first time. nbc's kerry sanders is outside kelly's home in tampa, florida, this morning. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it's been three months since news broke of the secret love affair between general david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. it all came to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has been totally turned upside down. >> kelly came to him to the interview to try to clear her nam
the hear, the senate will hold a confirmation hearing for john kerry. >>> well, speaking of that deadly attack in libya, the head of the fbi is in tripoli, libya. robert mueller is getting an update on the investigation into last year's killing of the u.s. ambassador, christines from here in the yarr -- chris stevens from here in the bay area and three other americans. there's been little progress on that investigation so far. >>> president obama's inauguration will be held in the nation's capital and many bay area people will be there. it will be especially personal for two bay area women. joan brown of orinda picked up her inauguration tickets yesterday. the retired schoolteacher, she even had her nails done to show her pride. pamela mays is going again and was there last year. >> i'm hoping it won't be so cold like it was last time. the temperatures were just freezing even in the section i was at. people were freezing. >> we worked so hard and to have him reelected. i can't stop grinning. it's really silly and standing in front of the freezer to see what it will feel like, could be o
&a with members of the senate, members of the house. now she moves on. john kerry's getting ready to start his own confirmation hearings. >> though, wolf, there was a big 2016 subtext to all of this. if secretary clinton ultimately runs for president, this is not the last we have heard of this, not the last we've heard of that bite, that we ran at the beginning of the piece. and of course, two members of the senate who might run for president as well were asking her questions. rand paul, very aggressive, and pla marco rubio, who was a little bit more subdued. >> less aggressive, marco rubio, than rand paul. so what you're saying is, potentially, if she decides to run for president in 2016, and a lot of us think there's a good chance she will, what she said today on benghazi, the whole record since september 11th of last year, that could come back to, what, play a role in a campaign? >> i would be surprised, if she runs, for that quote, where she says, what difference does it make, i would be surprised if that did not end up in a campaign commercial. a lot of republicans already making hay out of i
kerry getting ready -- john kerry is the chairman still of the foreign relations committee in the senate but he's recusing himself. he won't even be there. i think he's gearing up for his own confirmation hearing but bob menendez, he's going to chair these hearings. >> that's right. and this is an odd way for her to go out. but, yes, she's leaving this week. >> let's talk a little bit about you. today's your first day on cnn. about a month ago we saw you on another network. but what have you been doing the last month gearing up for this major new challenge in your life? >> a lot of gearing up, a lot of time with my children, jack and alice. and also, i have this new book that i wrote about afghanistan. >> best seller, i must say. >> it is a bestseller. >> "the outpost ", right there. >> one of the staff sergeants in that book, it was announced that president obama is going to award him the medal of honor in february. so i've been -- >> he's a central character in the book. >> he's a big character in the book and i've been preparing for that. we're going to have a party with him. i've bee
senator clinton will testify before the senate with the kerry confirmation coming right behind. there will be a lot of focus on the state department and the systems and the internal accountabilities and, it feels to me, like a lot of this was because of just a state department that is stovepiped. it is almost full of sclerosis and unable to attend to the issues of security and make decisions that need to be made in this regard. i think you know --. bill: but with that, to that regard, senator. >> okay. bill: there seems to be this constant theme about folks in washington wanting to know whether or not she was aware on the decision-making as to whether or not adequate security was in place in benghazi. >> right. bill: is that not the heart of this? >> i don't think there is any question she will be asked that especially with some of the cables we've all known about from chris stevens and some of the concerns and the fact, you know, the first thing that people up here want to talk about, bill, is money. that is the very first thing that came out of the arb. that was really disurg
is respected on both sides of the aisle. while your likely successor senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you've made our country safer, stronger, and in more secure and in my view because of your leadership, you are. the review board found that security was grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place in benghazi in september. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable and i am pleased that the state department has begun to promptly implement the board's recommendation, thanks to your leadership. i know that you agree that the massive security detail that cost the lives of four brave americans simply cannot happen again and i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect our diplomats and other americans that put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the african subcommittee, i am pleased that you have drawn for this committee in your testimony the links between this tragic incident in benghaz
